Arne Jacobsen for Fritz Hansen Grand Prix Chairs
The twelve Gran Prix chairs is made entirely of wood and was designed by Danish designer Arne Jacobsen for the Fritz Hansen manufacture in the 1950s. The model of the chairs is known as Grand Prix. The chairs of Arne Jacobsen offer a bold and geometric shape, very eccentric and peculiar.
The real special feature is its geometric backrest, which is very comfortable and convenient.
These chairs give an elegant and timeless appeal that is sure to last for generations to come and is suitable for elegant and extravagant environments.
The Grand Prix design was first introduced at Jacobsen’s Spring Exhibition at the Danish Museum of Art & Design, Copenhagen in 1957. Later that year, the chair was displayed at the Triennale in Milan where it received the Grand Prix award, after which the chair took its name.
